THQ has unveiled the collector's edition for Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, the upcoming 3rd person action game set in the gritty Warhammer universe. While details of the cooperative gameplay elements of Space Marine have yet to be revealed, we do know the game will offer some sort of co-op mode or modes.
Pictured above and priced at $99 the Collector's Edition is available exclusively from the THQ store and includes a replica Purity Seal, art book, soundtrack, and foil cards. Don't worry - if you don't want to order from THQ there are other pre-order options available.
The Warhammer® 40,000®: Space Marine® Collector’s Edition features a 10” replica Purity Seal, a glossy hardback art book, the official Space Marine soundtrack, a premium pack of 25 foiled character information cards and a copy of the game, packaged together in a premium box set. The Space Marine Collector’s Edition is available exclusively from the THQ.com Store in limited quantities. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions are available for a suggested retail price of $99.99 and the PC edition for $79.99

If you aren't sure yet if you want to pre-order the game or drop 99 bones on it, perhaps this video will change your mind. We're pretty sure the game is going to offer a co-op survival mode, perhaps even just like its RTS brethern, something akin to The Last Stand.
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine will be out this fall - we'll be going hands on with the game at E3 next week and hope to have the scoop on co-op.
